voyages in the china trade. sometime, not much longer after tocqueville came to america. he retired after that at the age of 31 and built a castle on the hudson river. the family was rich ever since off the profits from that kind of trade. that was america traveling around the world. and in the decades after tocqueville, it starts about his time, you also have american churches sending missionaries around the world. hawaii was annexed by the united states in 1898, but mission's were there in the 1820s. and so the religious impulse which tocqueville traces in america is one that america is also tracing in the world. and so that tocqueville doesn't, i believe, mention this development. this is the kind of activity, the hyperactivity that this country is producing, this country with its multiple religions, its very thin federal government, its strong belief in its increasing transportation and communication as the telegraph comes in in the 18, and its ability to basically cut space and time in half. so this buzzing activity that tocqueville is describing in america is also penetrating in var

: good morning and welcome to "washington journal" this july 4, 2012, independence day. we honor america's birth as a nation. on july 2, 1776, the continental congress voted to separate from great britain and adopted the declaration of independence two days later adopted by -- drafted by thomas jefferson. today we ask you believe in american exceptional ism. here are the numbers to call -- host: what do you think? we will talk about the history of american exceptionalism and where the term comes from and whether you think it applies today. good morning, iowa, independent line. caller: happy fourth of july, 2012. >> you as well. caller: i don't believe america is exceptional. i think all people are equal and exceptional separates people and when we separate people, we start having problems with discrimination which basically americans build on a foundation of discrimination. we are all at risk this november november if they put mitt romney in power. our society is controlled by a business, corporations, and government together over the people. we cannot have this. given the republicans be
and chrysler is the fastest-growing country in america. this is the man who made the call to go after osama bin laden. it was a bold decision. a bold decision with profound risks for our warriors as well as his presidency. but he made it and he made that decision on his own. bin laden is dead and america is more secure because of this m man's decision. he passed the affordable care act, a goal strived for by presidents starting with teddy roosevelt. it required him early on to use up almost all of his political capital. he prevailed where no president had done before. he was right. he was right. it cut $100 billion from the federal debt over the the next ten years, providing access to affordable health care to 30 million americans, 8 million black americans who never would have had insurance. this is a man, this is a president who has the character of his convictions. and almost never since we have taken office during this entire time did the republican congress reach across the aisle to help. on the recovery act, which kept us from sliding further into a depression, only three republican senat
. american families are struggling. there is a lot of misery in america today. these numbers understate what people are feeling and the amount of pain that is occurring in middle class america. not only is the 8.2% number unacceptably high and that has been in place for over 41 months, but in addition if you look at the broader analysis of people who are out of work or dropped out of the workforce or that are underemployed in part-time jobs needing full time work, it's almost 15% of the american public. then there those that are working, but working in jobs well beneath their skill level or multiple part-time jobs. kids that are coming out of college not being able to find work. veterans coming home not being able to do anything but stand in an unemployment line. these are very difficult times for the american people. there other numbers that are troubling. the manufacturing reports of the last several weeks indicate that manufacturing is not growing either domestically or in exports as we would have expected at this stage. that's a long-term trend that is very disturbing and troubling. the
'm jumping ahead of myself. i'm going to finish why the dangers for america giving them. those are the dangers that we can't really do this well. we don't know how to do it. and that there is a logic to allowing syrians to build a new nation out of this process of fighting. and that could leaders will emerge because they will be successful on the battleground than they will make alliances and they will suck up those militias today, will get eventually sucked in to one. and when that one is able to defeat the syrian army, it will be in a position to step into command and control of the country. so when you get the assad there will be chaos like it was in iraq. there will be a government in waiting, and a national military that can step into providing security for the people, making sure there isn't wholesale looting and people don't do bad things. that would be, of course, the ideal, and that would be the rationale with the obama policy. there are other rationales, of course like he doesn't want to be george bush, multilateralism. the russians said no, we don't want to go agains
are equal before the law. ladies and gentlemen, please make no mistake. islam is also coming to america. indeed, it has already arrived. your country, too, is facing a stealth jihad, an islamic attempt to introduce sharia law bit by bit by bit. islam demands already in america today separate campaign housing for muslims. islam demands that women have separate hours in gyms and swimming pools. schools in america today are banning christmas celebrations, are taking pork off their cafeteria menus to avoid offending muslim students and courts even in america, there are examples in florida, even in america have begun to apply sharia law. and be aware that this is only the beginning. if we do not stop the islamization, we will lose everything that we stand for, everything that we fought for. our constitutional state, our freedom, our civilization and in europe already today we are losing the right of free speech, the right to criticize islam. and what we need, my friends, this perhaps is my most important message to you today. what we need is a spirit of resistance. resistance to evil is our

will help lead the way to bring high-speed passenger rail to america. as many of you know, california will add 700 million residents in the next couple of years but it already has some of the most delay-prone airports and infrastructure. just on airline delays and high with traffic jams along california's credit highway's cost businesses and residents $14.5 billion per year. this rail line will ultimately lead passengers travel from los angeles to san francisco in less than three hours, twice as fast as you can drive. the california high-speed rail network is not just a logical answer to the states congestion problems, it is a landmark accomplishment for america. once again, california leads the nation on transportation.
